Honda appears to be a popular hit with female drivers after scooping two category wins at the recent Women’s World Car of the Year awards.
The awards, now in their seventh year, are the only global car honours voted exclusively by female automotive journalists.
The Honda civic was crowned the winner of the ‘family car category’ while the Jazz took the title of best ‘budget car’. The Japanese brand was the only manufacturer to take multiple category titles.
As expected, the voting process for Women’s Car of the Year awards was rigorous with each member of the global judging panel submitting their personal nominations. This years’ awards saw 294 cars nominated by 17 judges from 14 different countries. The nominated cars are then reduced to a shortlist of 32 cars in six different categories.
On receiving the double win, Sandra Hughes, Head of Automobile Marketing and Product Management, Honda Motor Europe, said: “Winning these two categories at the Women’s World Car of the Year awards shows how Honda’s cars match the needs of women around the world. What is particularly encouraging is the endorsement this gives to Civic ahead of the launch of the new hatchback in Europe early in 2017.”
